Preparation

1

Iced Parkin Squares

Preheat the oven to 170°C/Gas Mark 3. Grease and line a deep 20cm (8inch) square cake tin. Sieve the flour, Baking Powder and ground ginger into a bowl, and stir in the oats and ginger pieces.

2

Place the butter, treacle, golden syrup and sugar in a saucepan and heat gently until melted. Cool for 10 minutes before stirring into the dry ingredients along with the milk to form a thick batter.

3

Pour into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for about 50 minutes until slightly risen and firm to the touch. Cool for 15 minutes before turning on to a wire rack to cool. Wrap well and store for at least 3-5 days to allow the parkin to soften and moisten, before cutting into 12 pieces.

4

To decorate, sieve the icing sugar into a bowl. Stir in sufficient water to make a smooth, soft icing. Drizzle the icing over each piece of parkin and sprinkle a few ginger pieces on top. Allow to set for a few minutes before serving.
